About the Series
The federal landscape is constantly changing. The national health crisis that we are currently facing has brought greater changes and an even greater demand for innovative solutions by the federal workforce.
To help address these challenges, Graduate School USA (GSUSA) presents “Today’s Federal Workforce: Gleaning from the Past to Create Organizational Success,” a series of webcasts that uses our W. Edwards Deming Outstanding Training Award Program as a springboard for bridging current and future challenges with past successful Deming-winning solutions and the principles embodied by the Deming quality movement.
You will hear from one of the key leaders of The Deming Institute, as well as from the federal government agencies that have received the coveted Deming Award. Their winning projects are rooted in their unanimous ability to embrace a sincere desire to achieve their organizational objectives through a commitment to high-quality, while empowering all parts of their agencies. These virtual events will provide the federal workforce with informative, trailblazing and inspirational solutions that illustrate the strength and power of adhering to high quality standards ― especially during times of national crisis.
